Found August 10, 2013 on RealGM:
LeBron James is still mulling whether he will run as president of the NBA players union, but he is adamant about the disarray the NBPA is currently in. "I just think the union is going backwards and it's not in a good place right now," James said. "I think my voice could be huge in that situation." James would be the most high-profiled star to lead the players union since Patrick Ewing over 15 years ago. "I'm not sure I have the time to do it but it's something I'm going to think about with my team and go from there," James said. "But I think we all can agree there's been a lot of transition in our union in the last couple of years. If it's not me in that seat then I hope it's someone who is comfortable with it and can do the job."
